Since I'm doing mostly religious topics tonight I thought I’d bring up a post that I made at another site which I think is very important. Somebody somewhere wrote: "If the majority of voters voted in laws that only allowed Kosher food, then yes, Christians would abide by the law ("Render unto Caesar what is Caeser's" - Jesus Christ). Christians are to follow the law and be good citizens." What? What a perversion on the meaning of that passage. Using your logic... If the citizens voted in a mark that you had to take to be able to buy or sell then you’d have to take it because you and others perverted the meaning of this and will follow government blindly. Rev 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: Rev 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Rev 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, Rev 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: Rev 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. Rev 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. Rendering unto Caesar under your definition will cost you your soul. In context: Mat 22:17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not? Mat 22:18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? Mat 22:19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny. Mat 22:20 And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? Mat 22:21 They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's. Mat 22:22 When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way. I am God’s so I will render unto God and only unto God. I will not render anything nor should any Christian render anything unto Caesar. This is a huge perversion that many good people will be fooled because the “image of the beast” (modern day churches) preach this crap! The translation: Caesar's people will render unto Caesar while God's people will render unto God. It's really simple isn't it? Duh! Read your Bible and the creeps won't be able to fool you. Don't let these people steal your soul. "And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone." Don't be deceived!
